India Update – 3/24/12

They got it!!!

Tonight we just finished our last session – the workplace conference – to a very receptive crowd.  This was #39 for me in 13 days.  It is Saturday night in Bangalore – the city we started in 2 weeks ago – and we leave for the airport in one hour.  Twenty-five years ago when Geoff and Sherry Jordan lived here, there were 400,000 residents.  Now, there are more than 7 million.  The airport is modern and just a mile away are the poor slums.

A pastor attended tonight who had been here for the pastor seminar 12 days ago.  He had an engineer in his church who was uninterested. The pastor went to him and apologized for always trying to get the man to support his church and his ministry.  He asked the man how he, as his pastor, could help him in his ministry on his job.  The man responded and opened up.  They started a relationship.  His whole paradigm has shifted.  He has now picked out 5 horses to equip. He is overjoyed!  He gets it!

We got up at 3am this morning (Saturday) after a full day (Friday) – with the Delhi pastors in the morning and the workplace leaders Friday night.  I spoke 6 times and was not tired.  I have gained strength during the trip as the prayers from the states and here, and the Holy Spirit have sustained me. Wow has God been gracious and faithful.  Davidene and Geoff Jordan have filled in where Perry and Chris left off and have been well received talking about marriage, water wells, and the Be Transformed course.

I got to visit my friend who lives here in Bangalore and is a musician; he has visited 246 countries sharing Christ in the last 6 years.  He has 40 percent breathing capacity so we are quite a pair.

We have made many new friends here in India among pastors, workplace leaders, and ministry leaders. Workplace ministries are exploding here. We hope to find ways to continue to serve them in the days to come.

More of our transition back home as I will share tomorrow.  Thanks again for your investment by praying for the leaders of India.  This is a special time for this nation.

Your brother,
Kent
